Abstract

DI CHIACCHIO, Nilton; LOUREIRO, Walter Refkalefsky; DI CHIACCHIO, Nilton Gioia  and  BET, Diego Leonardo. Synchronous subungual glomus tumors in the same finger. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.3, pp. 475-476. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000300021.

The glomus tumor is an uncommon benign neoplasm of glomus cells. In the majority of the cases it is presented as a solitary painful papule in the subungual region. We report a rare case of a patient with two individual synchronous glomus tumors under the nail bed of the same finger.

Keywords : glomus tumor; nail diseases; nails; neoplasms, multiple primary; surgical procedures, minor.
